I know that money is tight for a lot of the companies out there these days.Â For this reason, I expected a little more in the creativity department for those lucky enough to be able to afford Super Bowl air time.Â Overall, the spots, especially the food ads, left me empty.Â The few that I did find somewhat appealing wereâ€¦
Miller High Life:Â One Second Spot â€“ Talk about making the most of an opportunity.Â This one-second ad featured the lovable Miller High Life beer man shouting â€œHigh Life.â€Â Very creative and economical.Â
Coke: Heist â€“ Just a great looking ad.Â I know itâ€™s not the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it just has a fun quality about it that made me take note.Â Also, no reference to the recent death of â€˜Classicâ€™ Coke, unfortunately.
Pepsi: Pepsuber â€“ Any pop culture reference to MacGuyver is a good thing in my book.Â That said, this was good in concept, but pretty mediocre in execution.Â And wow â€“ does Richard Dean Anderson look old.Â
Notable Mention for Being Terrible:
Sobe: Lizard Lake â€“ from the â€˜what were they thinking dept?â€ comes this weird-a-rama display of NFL players doing ballet, CGI lizards and other junk â€“ and did I mention it was all in 3D?Â Pleaseâ€¦
Any additions/subtractions to the list?
